Kempen Heath Ewe Cheek to Cheek With Lamb

Colin's Creatures Porcelain Animal Figurines, Kempen Heath Ewe and Lamb Snuggling


This tender pairing is one of my all time favorite, as it brings back so many memories of seeing ewes and lambs of all varieties snuggling in this very position in fields around the world. The ewe's head and legs are porcelain and the lamb is all porcelain. The ewe's cast stone body is covered with woven mohair and the lamb's fur is wool.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from the Steiff company in Germany.

Size: 5 1/2" Tall


Breed Description
The Kempen Heath Sheep (Kempische Heideschaap) is a very rustic and self-sufficient breed, which thrives on poor heath vegetation and is used primarily for land management in the central Netherlands. Changes in agricultural methods in the 20th century almost led to the Kempen's extinction, but an organization was formed in 1967 to save them. In 2006, Slow Foods took the Kempen under its wing, creating a market for them and reviving interest in the breed.
